NOTES TO THE INTRODUCTION. 1. The author of the Acts does not directly give to St. Paul the title of apostle. This title is, in general, reservod by him for the members of the central college, at Jerusalem. 2. Hom. Pseudo-Clem., xvii. 13-19. 3. Justin, Apol. i. 39. In the Acts also is seen the idea that Peter was the Apostle of the Gentiles. See especially Chap, x., comp. Petri i. 1. 4. I Cor. iii 6, 10; iv. 14, 15; ix. 1, 2. II. Cor., xL 2, etc . 6. Letter of Denys of Corinth in Euseb. Hist. Ecd. ii. 25. 6. French readers, for ample details upon the discussion and comparison of the four narratives, may see Strauss, Vie de Jesus, 3d sect., chapters iv. and v.

Cor. i. 8; xi. 23, &c.; Rom. xv. 19; xvi. 3, &c. 14. Acts xvi. 6; xviii. 22-23, compared with the Epistle to the Galatiaus. 15. For instance, the sojourn at Cesarea is left in obscurity. 16. Mabillon, Museum Itcdicum, i. 1 pars, p. 109. 17. CoL iv. 14. 18. See above, p. xii. 19. Almost all the inscriptions are Latin, as at Naples (Cavala), the port of Philippi. See Heuzey, Mission de Macedoine, p. 11, &c. The remarkable familiarity with nautical subjects of the au...
